William Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT
Directed by Robin Lynn Smith
Smith's telling of AS YOU LIKE IT is a story about exile: individual and communal, self imposed or coercive; and the possibility of using the time away to come to terms with the world and people left behind, and discover a new self. The forest of Arden offers a space where what is more true to nature -earthly and human can emerge. A stay in the forest offers the opportunity to perceive an altered balance between human beings and the natural world, and the seed of a subversive, communal state of being against the emerging individualistic state.
Director Robin Lynn Smith shared, "the plays demand everything we can bring, every time, to put the living, breathing story up there so that the audience can connect to these extraordinary circumstances fully embodied by the actors." Freehold's Engaged Theatre productions are intentionally dynamic and diverse so that any human can see a reflection of some part of themselves in the story, the characters, the music or movement.
